Downland Relief and Headland abstraction

I have been able to spend a little more time on my artwork since the start of the New Year and having focused on smaller abstracts I decided to produce my first relief for quite a while.

This new relief 'Downland Snow' was inspired by the recent weather we have experienced here in Dorset and I have used a plain light oak wood finish to the frame to compliment the tones and textures.

I have also finished 'Headland Blue' which was started when I was at Portland Bill and in this piece I have tried to capture the essence of the heavy seas breaking on the headland rocks at dusk.

New work January 2013

I am happy to present two new works in completely different styles.

For the first 'Edge of  Dunes' I have set it floating in a boxed mount with grey background within a real wood frame finished in chalky lily coloured paint.

For the second I have borrowed the style of George Dannatt whose geometric style lends itself to creating an interesting Landscape abstraction.

The piece is set in a real wood shallow box frame behind glass.

Down at the Coast

A happy New Year to one and all.

During the Xmas and New Year period I was fortunate to be able to spend time down at various parts of the Dorset coast irrespective of the weather.

I started a number of sketches on wood board which I am now completing before other work commitments take over my time.

I have maintained the smaller format of artwork set in box frames and pursue the 'abstract expressionist' style with textured layers to the surface.
